#AutumnTrendsBF | Day 1

Hello everyone! I was dearly hoping to have this post go live this morning, but life has been crazy and my computer doesn't like photos anymore. Today's outfit was a last-minute choice, as I was planning to wear flares today, but I've been living in jeans recently at both work and at home, so was really in the mood to wear a dress today.

What I'm Wearing
Striped Dress -- Target via thredUP [Free w/ credits]
Leggings -- Old Navy [$5]
Boots -- JustFab [$37]
Leopard Print Scarf -- J.Crew via Simply Chic [$8]
Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac -- thredUP [$35 after credits & coupon]

I went with a classic, yet simple look with my mixed neutrals outfit. With this one outfit I've broken many of the old fashion rules for styling outfits [rules that were strong in the 80s according to my Mom]. I mixed black + cognac and stripes + leopard, all making for a chic everyday outfit that is perfect for autumn.

Along with keeping my outfit on the simple side, I also kept my makeup super simple with only five products [no foundation or BB Cream] that I've been loving this week for on-the-go makeup. My go-to products for this week have been the following:
  • Urban Decay NAKED SKIN concealer + Beauty Blender [for the under-eye area]
  • Bare Minerals Eye Shadow Duo in The Epiphany [apply the shimmery bronze color with finger & used a blending brush to apply the matte brown into the crease]. 
  • Mascara [I've been playing around with different ones, as they are all drying up at the same time]. 
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Whiz in Dark Brown + Maybelline Clear Mascara to set them
  • Maybelline Matte Lipstick in Touch of Spice.
As a reminder, please link up the direct link to your blog post, not your main blog link. Thanks. You can link up your outfit for today below [Instagram, Twitter, and FB hashtag: #AutumnTrendsBF

  1. Absolutely adore thsi outfit! The stripes and leopard look great together. Unfortunately I couldn't enter the blog event today, and I'm not sure I'll be able to at all. Is it okay if I just enter 1 or 2 of the days, if I end up being able to?

  2. this is such a fun and cute look, i could not join as i have been sick and also i live in Aus and its been so hot then goes to cold and then back to really hot weather.


  3. Fun outfit, Ashley.
    I love stripes so much, I'm pretty obsessed.
